The DMV has alerted California law enforcement of the new extensions. Californians with a suspended license are not eligible.Drivers age 70 and older with a noncommercial license that expires in June or July will receive a 120-day temporary extension. The DMV had previously announced a 120-day extension for licenses expiring in March, April and May, and the DMV is further extending licenses expiring in March to be valid through July 31, 2020. California law requires drivers age 70 and older to visit a DMV field office to renew their license but gives the DMV authority to issue extensions. No individual action is required as eligible drivers will receive a paper license extension in the mail.Drivers age 69 and younger with a noncommercial license that expires between March and July will receive a temporary extension through July 31, 2020. In most cases, these drivers are eligible for an online renewal and should try to renew their license online. While the extension is automatic, drivers 69 and younger will not receive a new card or an extension in the mail. As an option, these drivers can request a free temporary paper extension online through DMV’s Virtual Field Office to document their extension, though one is not needed to drive. Californians who previously requested an extension through May 31, 2020, are eligible to submit a new request to document the new date.Driver license permits that expire in July or August are extended six months or to a date 24 months from the date of application, whichever is earlier.All commercial licenses, endorsements and learner’s permits that expire between March and June will remain valid through June 30, 2020, to align with federal guidance. Select DMV offices reopened to the public earlier this month to serve customers with appointments and process transactions that can only be accomplished at an office, including commercial driver license transactions. Commercial drivers also can now submit medical certificate updates for their license through the DMV’s Virtual Field Office, virtual.dmv.ca.gov.Reminder – online and alternate services expandedThe Virtual Field Office – which allows customers to upload documents, provide an e-signature (if required) and pay associated fees with an e-check to accomplish tasks that previously required an office visit – builds on the other online services already available to DMV customers at dmv.ca.gov, including eligible driver license and vehicle registration renewals.The DMV continues to provide essential services via mail, online, kiosks, call centers, available business partners and virtually to process critical transactions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Customers can use the Services Advisor on the DMV website to learn their options to complete DMV tasks.The measures to help Californians with expiring driver licenses are the latest DMV actions to protect customers and employees during the coronavirus pandemic, including:• Temporarily closing field offices. Following deep cleaning, expansion of virtual services and development of new protocols, the DMV is offering limited in-person services in each region.• Extending identification cards expiring on or after March 4, 2020, to be valid through June 21, 2020.• Temporarily waiving required in-person renewals for eligible driver license and identification cardholders with expirations between March and May 2020. Individuals who meet the criteria are able to renew online or by mail.• Waiving late fees and penalties for vehicle registration renewals due between March 16 and May 31, 2020, and paid within 60 days of the original expiration date, as well as delaying other requirements.• Launching the DMV Virtual Field Office to create new digital options for transactions that previously required an in-person office visit.

The uncertainty has finally ended for the Congress in Odisha with the party’s national president Sonia Gandhi dissolving the Pradesh Congress Committee office-bearers and all other committees constituted for the recently held Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in the State.PCC president Niranjan Patnaik and two working presidents Chiranjib Biswal and Pradip Majhi, however, will continue in their posts as per the decision taken by the Congress president on Monday.Resigned from post Mr. Patnaik, who was appointed PCC president in April 2018, had resigned from his post following the poor performance of the Congress in the State in the recent elections. His resignation, however, was not accepted by the AICC.“We are sure and confident that we will fight back and recover our space in Odisha politics,” said Saptagiri Ulaka, party’s lone Member of Parliament from Koraput, in a tweet, while thanking the Congress leadership for taking the necessary steps in reviving the party in the State.A party leader in Bhubaneswar expressed satisfaction over the AICC decision. As Mr. Patnaik, Mr. Biswal and Mr. Majhi have remained in their posts they should constitute different committees of the PCC without delay, he said.Regaining lost ground Another office-bearer of the party said that organisational restructuring should be carried out at all levels to regain the party’s lost ground in the State. The ensuing urban body elections will offer a chance to revitalise the party across the State, he said.The Congress has been losing strength in Odisha in recent years by losing ground to the Bharatiya Janata Party that is growing fast since it emerged as the number one rival to the ruling Biju Janata Dal in the panchayat elections in 2017. The Congress bagged only one Lok Sabha and nine Assembly seats in the recent elections as against one Lok Sabha and 16 Assembly seats in 2014.

The Ministry of Youth and Culture will be staging a joint press conference on Tuesday, December 18, to discuss issues relating to children in State care, among other matters. The Ministries of Justice and National Security; the Inter-ministerial Committee; and several other stakeholder agencies will also be participating in the press conference. This was disclosed by Portfolio Minister, Hon. Lisa Hanna, during an awards ceremony recognising wards of the State, at the Bank of Jamaica auditorium in downtown Kingston, on December 12. “A lot of negative things have been said about our children in State care and certainly about some of the things we are putting in place and that have been put in place,” she said. Ms. Hanna informed that the conference will discuss issues “in full,” particularly as it relates to children who come in contact with the law. In recent weeks, various groups have expressed concern about children being kept in lock-ups; and their well-being in State care. During the ceremony, 37 wards of the State who achieved outstanding results in this year’s Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) were honoured.
MONTREAL – Quebec workers with Bombardier’s CSeries plane program have mixed feelings about the deal with Airbus giving the European aerospace giant a controlling stake in the aircraft, a union representative said Tuesday.David Chartrand, Quebec co-ordinator for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said the deal means access to a massive market and possibly more jobs.The agreement, however, also secures a new, final assembly line in Alabama for the CSeries — employing non-unionized workers serving 30 per cent of the global market for the aircraft.“It is better to build (a plane) for 70 per cent of the market and sell thousands of planes, than build 100 per cent of an aircraft for 100 per cent of the market and we sell no planes at all,” Chartrand said.Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) was facing a massive obstacle after the recent decision by the U.S. Department of Commerce to propose a hefty 300 per cent duty on its CSeries jets in response to a complaint by rival Boeing.The department’s preliminary findings agreed with Boeing that Bombardier benefited from improper government subsidies, giving it an unfair advantage when selling its CSeries 100-to 150-seat jets south of the border.Bombardier says the deal with Airbus — and the new Alabama assembly line — means the CSeries will be able to be sold in the United States duty-free.“It becomes a domestic product and, therefore, a domestic product would not have the import tariff apply to this,” Bombardier CEO Alain Bellemare said Tuesday.The U.S. market represents roughly 30 per cent of CSeries sales, which means Montreal’s assembly line is ostensibly open to serving the other 70 per cent of the market.“That’s what Airbus seems to be saying, it’s what the Quebec government and Bombardier are saying — (but) I don’t have the details of what was in the agreement that was signed,” Chartrand said.If Airbus manages to increase orders for the CSeries around the world, that could mean more jobs in Mirabel, Que., he said.Airbus said the 100- to 150-seat market is expected to represent “more than 6,000 new aircraft over the next 20 years.”“Let’s say there are 6,000 plane sales that are possible,” Chartrand said. “If Airbus takes 50 per cent to 70 per cent of the market, that could mean an expansion of the Mirabel plant — but that’s the best-case scenario.”The Quebec government, Bombardier and Airbus all say the deal ensures the primary assembly line of the CSeries will remain in the province until 2041.A big unknown, however, is what region of the world outside the United States will become the market for CSeries growth.Moreover, another unknown is what effect the new assembly line in Mobile, Ala., will have on production.James Darcy, a spokesman for Airbus, said the intention is to expand the $600-million existing facility in Mobile, which opened in 2015, to meet increased demand.“But bear in mind the deal won’t even reach approval by all the regulatory agencies until the second half of 2018,” he said. “So there isn’t much we can say about production, given how early it is in the process.”Karl Moore, professor in McGill University’s Faculty of Management, said the deal with Airbus gives the CSeries “credibility,” which will make finding buyers outside the U.S. easier.“Airbus’ name, reputation, size of their workforce and fleet adds a lot of credibility to the CSeries,” he said. “We don’t have to worry if (the company) will go away and die at some point.”The fact Bombardier was being prevented from selling its planes in the U.S. due to the potential duties made buyers elsewhere hesitant to purchase the aircraft, Moore said.Moore said it’s highly likely Airbus will be able to leverage its big international sales and marketing force to sell the CSeries, which means more work for the workers in Montreal.“They should feel more comfortable about their jobs today than they did yesterday,” he said.The deal sparked debate in Quebec’s legislature Tuesday, with the opposition Parti Quebecois accusing the Liberal government of “selling the house to save the furniture.”Parti Quebecois Leader Jean-Francois Lisee said the government should have taken a stake in the entire Bombardier company instead of investing only in the “risky” CSeries unit.Quebec invested US$1 billion in 2016 for a 49.5 per cent stake in the commercial jet program.The new deal with Airbus gives Quebec a 19 per cent stake in the plane and Bombardier 31 per cent.“We preserved the aerospace industry in Montreal,” Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has rubbished speculation linking him with Manchester United to replace Jose Mourinho when he leaves.Last week, reports from Germany suggested that Manchester United have lined up Nuno Espirito Santo as a potential successor to Jose Mourinho.In the press conference ahead of Wolves match with Burnley, he was asked of the reports.“You know me. I don’t talk about that. It does not make sense.” Santo told Sky Sports.Vidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“This is not the moment to even think about it. I don’t think about it, I totally ignore that, I totally ignore it.”Reporters asked him if he aspires to one day manage a big club like Manchester United. He said: “I don’t do like that. I go on a daily basis.“I know what I have to do tomorrow – to prepare the boys well and prepare the team for a tough game against Burnley. This is the way I look at the future I take it day-by-day.”
